The Bargain Hunter: Beach breaks for 40% off

Virgin Holidays is offering up to 40 per cent off beach breaks booked before 15 February. The savings are on mostly non-European breaks, with the biggest savings to be found on islands in the Caribbean or Indian Ocean. For instance, seven nights at the Palms Resort in Barbados are available for just £485 per person, while a seven night half-board stay at the Coin de Mire hotel in Mauritius is just £899 per person. Both trips include return flights.

Tesco's decent telly offer

Tesco Direct is running a decent television offer online at the moment, with a Technika 32-244, fully HD, 32in television with built in Freeview available for £239. User reviews for the television are currently running at a particularly high 9.3 on the Tesco Direct website, so this is well worth considering if you're thinking of upgrading your home entertainment set-up.

Prices for students to study

Attention students! Miss Selfridge is now offering 20 per cent off all its ranges for customers who produce a valid NUS card at the checkout. The offer is only valid in-store, not online, but does include items in its extensive sale section and has no effect on Miss Selfridge's returns policy.

Valentine's romance at Asda

For the less soppy among you, Asda is also offering 100 Valentine's Day gifts for less than £10.
